Personal Notes:
You can make this 24 hours before serving. If using coleslaw mix that has purple cabbage, it might turn your slaw an interesting color--but the flavor is there.

My husband, Brett, found this on the internet and swears it's like the slaw he got at Howard Johnson's while traveling with his family in the 60s and 70s.

He also likes it on pulled pork sandwiches..I don't. I like it on the side.

I've made this many times and now skip the bowl and mix the wet ingredients and spices in a glass storage dish with a lid. Seal. Then add the Cole slaw mix and shake to combine. Turn container upside down and shake periodically.
